I did manage to get some of the back stitching done on Rocket before we left this morning. It certainly looks more like a real rocket this way. I also got some more cross stitching done, too, because I can only backstitch for so long (look at the pattern, take a stitch, look at the pattern, think about taking a stitch, but look at the pattern again to make sure). I don't know exactly how much I will stitch this when we get back to Nevada. I do want to finish at least Part One of Hawaiian Mandala when I get back. As long as Rocket is finished by the end of the year, I can put it down for a while. I don't think I will take it to Denver.
Now this one is much closer to being finished. I thought I would get a lot more done on the plane, but I ran into trouble. Not the dreaded frogs, but the dreaded KNOTS.
How did I possibly get two strands of thread this knotted up and how can I get out of it? I suppose cutting it is the only answer. Well, I do have tons of this WDW Crimson left and there isn't much to be stitched here. I should stop driving myself crazy trying to unknot it and just move on. But it did mean that I spent more time "playing" with thread on the plane than I did actually stitching. Sigh. I won't get much time here in San Francisco to stitch. I'm going to go out shopping tomorrow and I have a hair appointment at 4:15 pm. We are meeting some friends for dinner Friday night. Saturday we will be up bright and early for the Saturday Farmers Market and back to Las Vegas early Saturday evening. Maybe I could rest again some, but the friends we are having dinner with are also coming to visit us in Vegas starting next Thursday and we leave for Denver a week from Monday. It's been a while since we have had a driving trip and I am looking forward to it.
